- 2 cans coconut milk, regular
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

In a medium pot over medium heat stir coconut milk, sugar, and salt together. Add cinnamon sticks.
Spoon a few tablespoons of the coconut milk mixture into a small bowl and stir cornstarch into the mixture to dissolve. Pour into the mixture in the saucepan.
Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Cook until smooth and thick, about 3-5 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the mold and invert onto a plate to remove putting. Garnish with cinnamon.
